I got one of these tools for doing home reno's. The chisel type blade that is recommended for removing window putty, works really well for removing glue. It takes a bit of technique, too much pressure and angle and it will dig into the wood. However a bit of patience and a light touch and the glue will heat up and peel off leaving the wood bare. I use it for bridge reglues all the time but it works for other things as well.

Thanks John. I have one of those tools. I never could figure out anything to do with it. I will try this.

Are you referring to a Multitool? They are immensely handy. I bought one at HF and use Bosch blades. It's a riff on the oscillating medical saw. Great for cutting off necks on cheap guitars to make a bolt-on. Perfect for cutting a precise hole in drywall for an outlet, etc.

Right it's much like the Stryker saw they use in the movies for autopsies. It's also used to remove a cast, cuts something hard but not something soft, like skin. 

It's the blade on the left that I use for removing glue, the one with a bevel and no teeth. I used it to strip finish one time as an experiment, it worked but was tricky on a spruce top.

You can call it either but you'll get more results on Google using oscillating tool, a multi tool often refers to a leather man or a swiss army knife.
